David Johnson injured in Cardinals game vs. Lions

Report: Cardinals' David Johnson Could Miss 'Half the Season' With Sprained Wrist

Arizona's secondary did a fine job against Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford in the first half.

Another good sign? Golladay shook off a tough first half before taking over.

The Cardinals' offense looked pretty bad even with Johnson in the backfield. The Lions limited opposing quarterback Carson Palmer to 269 passing yards, one touchdown and three interceptions.

The defense forced four turnovers and rookie wide receiver Kenny Golladay emphatically announced his arrival with a pair of touchdown receptions as the Detroit Lions overcame a sluggish start to beat the Arizona Cardinals in the season opener Sunday, 35-23.

The third-year pro managed just 23 yards on 11 carries and fumbled twice.

The 22-year-old, who played his college football at the University of MS, was selected by Arizona in the first round (29th pick overall) of the 2016 NFL Draft.

Amanda Nunes Retains Championship Via Split Decision Over Valentina Shevchenko
Many boos accompanied the tactical fight, but champ Nunes said her priority was not on delivering a crowd-pleasing fight. Round five had a big question coming in: how would the judges score this? Nunes lands a hard straight right hand late.

The Lions defense was also very impressive.

Lions: Kasey Redfern's National Football League debut didn't last long. Arizona was a trendy Super Bowl pick last season but a dismal start to the year quickly derailed those plans and now they are left trying to play their way back into that conversation, but they certainly have the pieces to do some damage, led by superstar running back David Johnson.

Both teams are coming off preseason losses, the Cardinals fell 2-30 to the Broncos while the Lions suffered a 17-27 loss to the Bills.

QB Comparison: Stafford finished 29-of-41 passing for 292 yards with four touchdowns and the one interception. Three Lions converged on him for the tackle and brought him down quickly. He was replaced on kickoff returns in the second half by Agnew.

Johnson went down and was laying on his back as the medical staff came out to attend to him.
